A man like me isn’t capable of redemption.
I sell women. Abuse them. Demean them. The day I banged the gavel for the first time is the day I sold my soul, and there’s no coming back from that. I’ve never wanted to. Until she shows up.
She should be just another commodity, but I’m drawn to her in a way I didn’t think was possible. Against my better judgement, I take her for myself, convinced she’s an itch I have to scratch. But she has me under her spell and wishing for redemption instead.
The problem is, when you try to crawl out of Hell, the demons drag you back down. And I’m afraid my demons will drag her down with me.
Nicole Cypher delivers a dark romance that will leave you shuddering!
Desired is the first book in the interconnected standalone series Darker Places. It's a complete story with a guaranteed HEA and NO cliffhanger. This book contains dark subject matter. Reader discretion is advised.
Those are the titles I’d carried since I was sixteen. It may have been a dangerous career, but it’s how I survived. Besides, I was always careful… until I wasn’t.
I’d gone and pissed off the wrong john. One with friends in high places who want me dead.
Now my life lies in the hands of the man ordered to dispose of me. A man by the name of Snake…
...Something tells me he bites.
As a detective, it was my job. Jake Cryson was the best lead I had to getting information on the trafficking ring I'd been trying to bring down for the past year. He was the key. I could feel it in my bones.
But I got caught.
And now he has me...
My name is Laila Ashby, and this is only the beginning of my story.
The word brought so many things to mind. My enemies. My friends. Anyone who’d ever stood in the way of my position in the crime organization.
I was damn near Kingpin, until it was stripped away by a detective who couldn’t keep her nose from sniffing around.
I thought I could rid myself of her and every informant she’d managed to recruit, then I’d have redeemed myself and all my problems would disappear. But she ended up in my bed, and I couldn’t seem to pull the trigger.
Now there are bigger fish to answer to, and by the end of it we might all be… demolished.
I say it isn’t enough.
I’ve spent the last twenty years building my empire, but I’ll never forget the gutters I had to crawl through to get here. Or the enemy who made it that way. Kevin Cryson, the man who destroyed my life. It isn’t enough to build my own empire if I can’t crush his.
Luckily, I’ve found his weak spot. The perfect lure in the form of a brown-eyed devil with chestnut hair and a deviant smile. The princess he never should’ve let leave the castle.
They say revenge makes people bitter.
I’ve never tasted anything so sweet.
